Why I teach

My Story

1. I was terrible at languages at school!

At school, my French teacher often made us speak in front of the whole class. Mistakes led to shame, embarrassment and frustration

I was also very shy, and that didn’t help me.

2. A better way to learn

Working in education  for the last 25 years,  I have discovered a better way to teach and to learn.

A way where learning a language changes from shame to excitement, from meaningless knowledge to a useful skill and from frustration to opportunity.

This is why I set up the KEITH SPEAKING ACADEMY to help you enjoy learning English, to build your confidence and get the score you need in IELTS, and so change your life!
